Re: PICTURE POST II!

Cool pics, Tom. It's never too early to get a kid interested in astronomy and telescopes and I'm always so grateful my own parents encouraged and aided my own love of the stars and night sky when I was a kid.

I got to meet some childhood icons of mine this weekend:

That's Joel Hodgson and Frank Conniff of Mystery Science Theater 300 fame!

And here's Trace Beaulieu and Mary Jo Pehl!

Also, I walk away with this:


This was the best weekend ever!

Let me touch the hand that touched Joel, Frank and Clayton Forrester.

I'm trying to introduce my kids to things like this early, trying to give them the advantages I didn't have growing up. A lot of the 'things' I'm into, I had major interest in as a child but parents who couldn't or wouldn't afford me the opportunities. I didn't goto my first museum until I was an adult, didn't have my first telescope until I was an adult.

When we did touchups my tattooist added a fibonacci spiral and it is now my favorite part, especially the way it curls when I bend my elbow:

Not to a museum, growing up I went to Catholic school and there were very few if any field trips.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

^ Every school is different, and I don't want people to get the wrong impression here. My kids are going to Catholic school too, but they go on quite a few field trips. My 8th grader just got back from a week-long one to Dauphin Island!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I went to public school in the eighties and early nineties and field trips to museums and learning facilities were commonplace back then. We must have visited the local science and history museums at least, oh, once a year it seems. There was a concerted effort to get kids out of their classrooms and school walls on a regular or at least semi-regular basis to experience learning elsewhere, and it was made as fun as possible to keep us engaged.
